    Christian Redl and Bill Acker at DEMA

    Yap's Annual Homecoming Festival is a heritage celebration recognizing the contributions and bonds from the past that have made Yap what it is today. Past festivals have honored the Palau connection as well as the Chamarro connection of the people from Guam living here after World War II.

    The 2015 celebration, June 17-20, 2015 is going to recognize 30 years of diving history in Yap with special guests, Hall of Fame Dive Pioneers Mr. Ernie Brooks (2005), Mr. Leslie Leaney (2012) and Yap's own Bill Acker (2014). Ernie's career with the Brooks Institute of Technology is legendary and Leslie is, among many other things in the diving world, the co-founder of the Historical Diving Society. The opportunity to meet, dive and socialize with these world recognized leaders in the dive industry is a chance you won't want to miss.

    To be included in the best of Yap diving and culture, June 17-20, 2015 - email: bill@mantaray.com for bookings and flight assistance


    Why Yap?

    Be the only boat at the dive site.

    Yap is visited by ~ 1,000 divers each year offering visitors the uncrowded, undeveloped exotic island experience in a big animal sanctuary.


    Parting Shot...

    A man returns home a day early from a business trip. It's after midnight.

    While en route home, he asks the cabbie if he would be a witness.

    The man suspects his wife is having an affair, and he wants to catch her in the act.

    For $100, the cabby agrees.

    Quietly arriving home, the husband and cabbie tip toe into the bedroom.

    The husband switches on the lights, yanks the blanket back and there is his wife in bed with another man!

    The husband puts a gun to the naked man's head.

    The wife shouts, 'Don't do it! I lied when I told you I inherited money'
    HE paid for the Porsche I gave you.
    HE paid for our new cabin cruiser.
    HE paid for your Eagles season tickets.
    HE paid for our house at Margaret River.
    HE paid for your African tour and the 4 x 4.
    HE paid for our Vines club membership, and HE even pays the monthly dues!

    Shaking his head from side-to-side, the husband lowers the gun.

    He looks over at the cabbie and says, 'What would you do?

    The cabbie replies, 'I'd cover him with that blanket before he catches a cold.'


    All that's missing is you...

    This is the time of year that we wind up the summer events, prepare for the fall season and holidays, which are typically busy for us.

    Coming up in this season is the start of manta ray mating then ringing in a new year.

    Big animal diving, exotic culture and interesting lifestyles are what you'll find.
